Chipotle + Lime Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Brighten up your day with this SUPER SIMPLE, but fiercely DELICIOUS meal idea!

CFC Chipotle Lime Shrimp wraps are a really FUN, and EASY recipe to serve a crowd, so invite your people over tonight and enjoy some GOOD food together!

➡️ Rachel’s Tips:

Chipotles in adobo sauce is a great way to get that deep, smoky, spicy cooked-all-day flavor into a quick weeknight dish.

Look for simple ingredients if you’re buying a jar at the store (OR make your own! Lots of recipes online if you Google them.)

Chipotle chiles are dried smoked jalapenos. Adobo is tangy, slightly sweet red sauce.

So the ingredients may include peppers, spices, herbs, garlic, vinegar, etc.

I like to freeze the extra peppers in adobo & sauce, in an ice cube tray for future use.

Makes 4-6 servings


  • 2 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 heads butter or bibb lettuce leaves
  • 3 chipotle peppers with adobo sauce
  • 3 fresh cloves garlic, minced
  • The zest of 1 large fresh lime
  • the juice of 1 large fresh lime
  • 2 Tbsps avocado oil, unrefined coconut oil, or olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

To serve:

  • bunch of freshly chopped cilantro leaves,
  • 1 large English cucumber, chopped
  • additional lime wedges
  • chopped green onions


Chop your shrimp into small bite-sized pieces and place them into a large glass bowl.

Finely chop up your chipotle pepper and add it to that same bowl together with adobo sauce, minced garlic, lime zest, lime juice, sea salt, and pepper.

Toss shrimp gently to coat really well with all the goodies.Allow shrimp to sit in this sauce for about 10 minutes while you prepare your lettuce. Thoroughly rinse the lettuce with cold water, then pat the excess moisture with paper towels, or allow to air dry on towels.Arrange lettuce leaves nicely on a large platter. You can double them up if desired, to better hold (transport,) the filling.

Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Add in your oil and heat until simmering. I really prefer a cast iron for this, to get that beautiful char…but any skillet will work.

Add in your shrimp with its sauce, and cook stirring occasionally, until slightly charred and opaque, about 2-3 minutes.Divide your chipotle lime shrimp among your lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with chopped cucumbers, cilantro and drizzle with freshly squeezed lime juice as shown.Serve immediately and enjoy! Remember to tag me @CleanFoodCrush in your creations!
